New Directions for Institutional Research, n162 p17-27 2014
This chapter examines the differences between institutions with high and low levels of involvement in service learning as well as the differences between students with high and low levels of involvement. The study shows a correlation between institutional organization and service-learning emphasis and describes, at the student level, correlations between service-learning involvement and both deep approaches to learning and self-reported gains.
